In large parts in Europe, communities suffer the corrosive effects of sectarian and nationalist politics. Our mission is to help communities become stronger and more resilient by creating a cross-cutting network of start-ups. We believe that the shared pursuit of entrepreneurial ambitions can rebuild a community.
“I am truly glad and grateful I was part of it.” Adrijana Paceska, participant Struga program
We use the universal language of food to connect people and celebrate what they have in common.
Talent across the divide works together on social start-up ideas that tackle community challenges.
People help each other realize their entrepreneurial ambitions by pooling their skills and resources.
In these days of industrialised food, we tend to forget how food has shaped our identity. Food not only expresses who we are, it is also a powerful social lubricant.
Nationalism is not the awakening of nations to self-consciousness; it invents nations where they do not exist
Ernest Gellner, philosopher
